Full Strawberry Moon




Native Americans often referred to the June Full Moon as the Strawberry Moon because the strawberries were being harvested in June. The actual time of  this "full moon" in Seattle was about 4:02 AM Monday morning, June 20th (yesterday).  We were afraid we had missed the event due to a mostly cloudy sky. However, around 5:30 AM we happened to look to the west where their was a clearing near the horizon. As you can see, we were lucky!

  2. 4AM in the morning, you should have been with the Druids down at Stonehenge this morning watching the Sunrise. Me I'm fast asleep. Nice work catching the moon like that, I never can

  4. Beautiful! I'm glad you captured it. I saw it, but didn't even try for a shot because I knew it wouldn't turn out.
